1000 BFT of poplar for a barn. If a sawmill isn’t broken, it’s about to break… I had to take the log holder to a machine shop and have a new bolt welded in place so I could hold the logs. Then, I had to buy a new battery to start the darn sawmill. (well it was about 5 years old) There were also a couple of other issues to fix before I could finish this order. This week I’m sawing more poplar and oak. I’ve got some beautiful logs on the log deck.

Darn it, I don’t have anything that rhymes…But I know where you are coming from fixin’ things to be able to mill, I did more fixing than milling today (fixing 100%-milling 0%)

If you cut that wood, it’s understood
That the customer will cheer and maybe buy you a beer…..

If the planks are straight, they’ll think you are great.

Cherry is merry, but ash is a smash!
Makore is sorry, but cedar is neater!
